If we start a big winning streak, the media is going to be all over this team singing our praises. Hopefully the coaching staff and leaders on this team can keep everyone grounded and focused as the season progreses.
I'm not really concerned about that. IMO that would be a bigger deal if this was not a team full of veterans or if it was a team w/o any playoff success.
The vast majority of players on this team have won at least one playoff game. That means quite a bit, IMO. It's not like we are the Atlanta Falcons, who have struggled in January and now have that "can't win in the playoffs" label. It's not like we are the 2011 Detroit Lions, a team who's leaders don't have any playoff experience at all.
